Who knows the provenance of these melamine dishes, but they sure are pretty! Perfecto for a picnic in the park, pasture or whatever place.

In The Big City, there was this gorgeous park and this breathtaking one, and hundreds of others scattered throughout the neighborhoods. Here in The Small Town, there are at least two parks that I have seen with my own eyes. One is itty bitty. The other is the town gathering spot from spring through autumn. It contains the towns football and track arena, picnic areas, swimming pool with a slide, a small zoo, miniature train, miniature golf and a carousel that costs a mere 5 cents per person! Small time entertainment. Great for the pocketbook.
